Mt. Rushmore Road Reconstruction Project

August 9, 2015

Drivers in Rapid City should prepare for a shift in traffic on the Mt. Rushmore Road reconstruction project set to begin Monday, Aug. 10. Two-way traffic will be carried in the southbound lanes on the west side of the road while work is being done on the east side (northbound lanes) of the road.

Tower Road Bridge will remain open until approximately Tuesday, Aug. 25 when traffic will switch to single lane traffic until construction is complete in that area.


Be advised that detours will be set up for Flormann Street and Indiana Street access while utilities are being worked on.


Business access on Tower Road and Mt. Rushmore Road will remain open at all times. Rapid City Medical Center is accessible via Tower Road from Cathedral Drive. Drivers can expect delays and should plan trips for right-hand turns whenever possible. Please follow the road signs, pay attention to the speed limit and be aware of construction equipment and workers adjacent to driving lanes.
